Another good one, dude. That's all I got to say.
Nice song you have here, although I think some of your sounds were a bit basic :( I don't want to put you down or anything but as far as I know and even my self, I feel that FL presets pull songs down heavily, unless they're masked by other well known pro samples.
Anyway. To be constructive, I'd definetly say that your bassline was a bit too low pitch, you couldn't clearly hear it in the background. Also this song needs more structure, if you don't know it's usually.. intro/melody/breakbeat (subtune)/Melody/Outro. You kind of had 3/4 of the song an intro. You should have brought the tune at 0:56 into a full lead. Because that tune could be easily changed to a melody. Also it would sound great.
If you can't find any decent sounds in the FL presets, check Generators/Sytrus/Synth String and look for Platinum Saw/Gold saw etc. They're fairly good and won't be looked down upon if the right effects are used. But hey, you're new here. :D
Please check out my new submission. Brando - December Previews. Thanks.
-Cheers Brando. Good luck with submissions to come.
Done and done!
Well you pretty much hit the nail on the head with what I thought the song was lacking.
I actually tend to use Plat. saw a lot and tried to avoid it.
But Ill make sure to use that structure/progression for my next submission.
Thanks for your lengthy review!!!
This is an odd song. The chords and melodies you use seem to switch freely between major and minor scales, which makes for a very interesting and non-repetitive song. Some of the melodies are really catchy though, so kudos for that, and the mastering is very well done.
Overall it's a good song, just a little unusual for my tastes, but I can tell that there was a lot of work put into it.
Wow, someone actually noticed that!
Im glad you found it unique!
My next song should lean towards a classic Trance layout, more so than this one.
Thanks for the review!!!
Its a pretty nice beat. I don't hear any major problems with it. I can easily rock with the music so thats always a plus.
The only thing that you might need to work on is releasing the energy in your song. It stayed pretty constant through out the song. And you can probably help it sound better by adding something dynamic to just burst out musical energy.
Other than that, nice job.
Thanks a lot for the review!
I always feel that when I try and communicate energy into my songs, my buildups sound weird, so I generally avoid them.
But I know sooner or later Im gonna have to do them, so in my next song I promise there will be so much energy and power it'll be ridiculous.
Again, thanks for the review!!!
